1) Did Matt Easton really beat Scott Brown and Matt Gallas in an arm-wrestle for control of the colonies?
2) Was Lopes wearing a kilt and doing a Scottish accent for a big chunk of the night?
3) There was a Pirate, right? Please tell me there was a pirate...
4) Woke up with a face plastered in glitter - where on God's earth did that come from?
5) Woke up with my hand stamped (suspect it said "Reject" in french) - anybody know anything this?
and a special thanks to Fab's chap's for tolerating having themselves described in broken french for most of the night (Barbe Noire etc!).
Very much looking forward to next year!

1. The weather generally sucked - no girls in summerdresses on the campus, but instead an awful cold for me. Bearer of the Hat of Awesomeness, please fix the weather next year!!!
2. The event is over and I have to wait another year.....I even already miss being annoyed beyond belief by that fuckhead at the nightshift of the B+B Hotel...

Both were struck down by the Empire, with Mr.Brown claiming foul play! Having failed to save the colonies from being reclaimed by Her Majesty's representative, in true American fashion Mr.Galas then solicited aid from the French in the form of Mr.Perrier (Kurso), claiming that this would be their New Orleans. However, I subdued the French mercenary, saluting his valour. Having crushed all these Republican opponents I can confirm that the former United States are now once again firmly under Crown control, thanks to God, humility and my arms.

I believe the precise phrase was "In your face". What exactly was in your face is between you and whatever gods you worship (and possibly a platoon of glitter-wielding Burgundian girls).

yeah, this idiot is spoiling the arrival year to year again.... I don't know how employee issues are dealt in france, but in austria this fuckhead would been fired after 2 minutes.

Much more opportunity for rapier fights. It is pleasing to see more and more of the HEMA community making it into the 17th Century. Thanks to Thibault and Reinier for some entertaining fights!
The tournament gave me my first opportunity to fight Axel (somebody, please, post video!). I enjoyed my fights with both him and Alain immensely (certainly, the crowd appeared to appreciate our efforts). It was also the first chance I have had to use the Knight Shop synthetics. For Bolognese sword and buckler I found the synthetics vastly superior to the shinai I used last year - I'm definitely looking forward to the complex hilt version now.
It appears that I will have to learn the words to Hearts of Oak before Fight Camp. Sorry Bryan.
Scott's face was very entertaining when it became apparent that he had confused andouillette and angouillette.
Doubtless additional memories will surface as my neurons and synapses recover from the abuse I have subjected them to - for now, it only remains to say thanks to Fab, Sarah and team for all the work they put in organising the event and to say what a great pleasure it was to see so many of my swordy friends there.
